Lee County school district investigating possible testing fraud at Island Coast High

Allegations of possible testing fraud at Island Coast High School in Cape Coral are being investigated by the Lee County school district.

The issue was apparently reported in writing as well as verbally during the 2018-19 school year by Vicki Santini, a former teacher at the school who has since been reassigned to North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts.

Her attorney, Benjamin Yormak, said Santini “objected to testing fraud” during the last school year and said the incidents have to do with students taking credit-retrieval courses. These are computer-based classes that allows students who may have failed a previous class to catch back up on their school work to earn credit so they can graduate on time.
